District 1 congress aspirant Crisanto “Monsi” Dela Cruz said he humbly prays that the city government should take a ‘pro-active’ and positive approach amid power crisis.
“We should have a comprehensive plan wherein we can lure businessmen outside Zamboanga City willing to invest on electricity and power here,” Monsi said.

Commenting on rumors that Zamcelco will raise the rate of power, Monsi said he also humbly prays that before they think of raising the rate they should have efficient power service.

“It’s really unfortunate for the people, especially us paying more than half a million pesos to Zamcelco. We need efficient power service,” he lamented.

Monsi observed that the problem on electricity is very alarming wherein it affects the business community, schools, the lives of ordinary people and sad to say many appliances are destroyed.

He called on all stakeholders including government officials, the academe, and business sector to come together to solve the power crisis in the city that is affecting everybody.

“We should tackle this issue (problem). They (government officials) should walk the talk not only talk and talk. They should come out and offer solutions,” he said.

Meanwhile, Monsi branded the improvements in Zamboanga City by the present administration as “cosmetics”, saying these are all palliatives.

He said that, “If I were in their shoes I will take something that is pro-active. I will not even wait for the problem before the problem becomes big,”

As a businessman, he said, he gives what is due to the government but they expect also good services be it from the Zamcelco and the water district.

“We have to give the businessmen the right incentives for Zamboanga city to have real development,” Monsi further said.

According to him, the only thing they can be proud off is the billions of pesos that have been deposited in the bank by the present administration.
